Little One

This week's Less Is More challenge is to make a one layer card with heat or dry embossing. I am so lovin' these little button birdies from PTI's Everyday Button Bits, I just had to use them again today. When I looked through my stash of EF's and found a long forgotten set of 4 little EF's with different circle designs, my card design came immediately to mind.  The small button birds fit perfectly inside the embossed circles.  The rest is easy to see...

Here is my recipe:
Stamps ~ PTI Everyday Button Bits, SU Nursery Necessities.
Paper ~ Kraft, White.
Ink ~ VersaFine Onyx Black, Rose Red.
Accessories ~ Cuttlebug, markers, Kaiser self adhesive pearls, buttons, glue dots, Scor-It, SU Polka Dot grosgrain ribbon.

I am really happy with this one.   Thank you LIMettes for the inspiration! Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!
